:Hello All,
:I was the poster of this on -stable.  No one replied to me after that post.  I
:still have the kernel.debug and the vmcore.

    It looks like it may be the module release loop on lines 418-432.  I
    suspect that the 'next' pointer is being recursively released and winding
    up invalid, in which case it should be possible to fix by temporarily
    bumping next->refs within the loop, then checking for a ref-count of 1
    and releasing it as appropriate.  I will attempt to reproduce the crash
    and see if that fixes it.

    This could also be the same problem that esmith is reporting.
